This week, we welcome the amazing Candice Ransom. Candice has written more than 150 books, including 18 books for The Boxcar Children series, The Time Spies series and the Sunfire series. She wrote the Dungeons & Dragons novel, Key to the Griffon’s Lair. Her work includes picture books, easy readers, middle grade fiction, biographies, and nonfiction. More than 45 of her titles have been translated into 12 languages.
Laura and Candice discuss her fascinating career, and then open the floor for a freewheeling “Ask Us Anything” session!
Laura also checks in with publishing links, and we celebrate the successes of some Children’s Book Insider subscribers.
